IMPORTANT I: If you experience symptoms similar to COVID-19 and still test negative on a rapid test, isolate yourself until your symptoms have resolved and protect vulnerable people around you.
In summary, it is important to remain cautious, especially for those at higher risk of developing complications, due to age or immunosuppression. Everyone must act responsibly, according to their situation.
Thank you for your cooperation!
